Taiwan’s STARLUX Airlines has taken delivery of its first widebody A330-900 aircraft. This is the first of 26 Airbus widebody jets to join the airline’s fleet, comprising eight A330neo and another 18 A350s.
The airline has 17 A350s on direct order with Airbus, and the remaining A330neo aircraft and one A350 will be acquired on lease from aircraft lessor ALC.
The new-generation widebody, which can accommodate up to 33 LD3 containers underfloor, joins an existing fleet of seven single-aisle A321neo at the airline. This will enhance its network on regional routes from Taiwan to the wider Asia Pacific.
